geniiorlandoj: It's been a long time since I worked with NIS, and that was on a FreeBSD system and not ubuntu. Let me look for some link which may assist you01:30
orlandojgenii: on server, i run yppasswd -p and return the message: "yppasswd: não foi possível encontrar o ypserver master: Erro interno no NIS"01:30

epimethhow do I disable strigi?01:43
iainhello having some problems with ark and kubuntu 8.04.   I can't get it to open a .zip file.... all it keeps saying is "could not write to destination file".  I'm probably doing something really dumb....01:43
geniiepimeth: In konqueror put url:        strigi:/                 and then choose to disable it from the web interface01:45
geniiiain: Is the .zip file in a location you have write access to?01:46
iainshould its in my home directory01:47
geniiiain: It may be wanting to unzip into some directory you don't have write access.01:47
iainI'm pointing it to my home directory for that too... ohh hmmm just a sec...01:48
noys_anyone know how to set up internet connection sharing i have a computer with 2 cards one is a wireless card which connects to the internet, The other is a ethernet card that connects to my xbox. I want the ethernet forwarded to the internet through my wireless01:48
geniiiain: Since you're on Hardy perhaps also ask in #ubuntu+101:48
iainnope... I thought it might want a file/folder name for the extracted files and that's why it wasn't doing it... but that didn't work either01:49
noys_so ethernet to xbox ;  wireless  to internet so then ; Ethernet to wireless = both get internet access.01:49
iainwill do01:50
geniiiain: If the backend is not installed, ark would also have a problem. Make sure package unzip is installed (it's not by default)01:50
epimethgenii: cheers01:50
epimethgenii: all I can do is "start service"01:51
geniiepimeth: If you don't need indexing you can just remove it entirely using the package manager of your choice01:53
geniiepimeth: There seems to be some bug report of same issue you have01:53
epimethgenii: but I don't want to remove it.. I just want to disable it01:54

Dr_willisnoys_,  if you can get both machines pinging each other. and one box on the internet. It can be set up as the ipmasq server, and forward stuff to the other box.01:56

Buhmanatorhi tropyhead04:11
noys_how do i fix this problem? i ran the command apt-get and got this error Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)04:11
trophyheadhey is the bus speed of my computer in any way related to how fast a video card I can get? like the mhz's,?04:13
MrJoeyIt determines how fast video images can be sent from the motherboard/RAM to the video card.04:14
MrJoeyFor instance, when I installed a Radeon card, graphics acceleration was increased dramatically, but other things slowed down due to the overhead of sending data through the PCI bus.04:14
sarssory gis04:15
MrJoeyFor instance, using Compiz with the Radeon card results in a faster cube animation, but things are more jumpy because any time something changes, that change has to pass through the PCI bus rather than being zapped or mapped straight to integrated graphics.04:15
trophyheadhmm well that really bites!, I have an old ibm desktop & it's buc speed is 133mhz (turtle slow), currently have nvidia tnt204:15
MrJoeyI don't know how fast my PCI bus is; I just know my computer is from about 2002.04:16
Buhmanatorprobably 33mhz04:16
Buhmanatoror you could be nostalgic like me and underclock your pci bus to: 0.74mhz-- the same speed of an intel400404:17

moj0risingOK. Well.04:38
moj0risingafter upgrading and working through some issues...04:38

moj0rising...what I really want to know is...04:40
moj0rising...how can I remove the "restricted" broadcom driver...04:40
moj0rising...I loaded while running gutsy.04:40
moj0risingI don't need wireless on this machine04:40
moj0risingand it never worked right anyway.04:40
moj0risingI know how to remove the restricted driver from within kde..04:40
|TroubleMaker|dthacker, thanks man...I'll continue to look. Its gotta be something simple i've missed. just a PITA to delete each job before printing the next one ya know.04:40
moj0rising...but I don't have kde working right now because of this.04:41

brandi_I just couldn't see any errors on it.05:16
brandi_so, I'm wondering how I can remove that nvidia driver now.05:17
brandi_If I do that, I can get x going again.05:17
brandi_going to try the "safe mode" x...05:17
monkeybritchesDid you try sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg ?05:19
brandi_I'll try it now though.05:19
brandi_safe mode x doesn't work...05:19
monkeybritchesAnd did you try to download a driver from nvidia?05:20
brandi_well. I didn't download the driver from nvidia. I used the restricted drivers tool in gutsy..05:24
brandi_...to install it...05:24
brandi_...and when I did an upgrade...05:24
brandi_I got all these errors with the wifi and nvidia video.05:25
brandi_in hindsight, I should have removed those before upgrading.05:25

bob__Hi I need some help..how do I use windows instant messenger and yahoo and where do if find it09:45
ubotuInstant Messenger Client Kopete (http://kopete.kde.org) is supporting MSN, Jabber, AIM, Gadu-Gadu, Novell Groupwise, ICQ and IRC. See also !Pidgin09:47
aftertafbob__: you sure you 'NEED' windows messenger?09:48
aftertafintelikey: though MSN is borked in kopete right now.09:48
aftertafhardy at least09:48
intelikeyaftertaf k i'll note that.   although i probably wont be here much.09:49
makdaknifeI'm having a small load problem... one of my boxes is sitting constantly at a 0.58 load average... however, running top no processes seem to be using the CPU... how can I determine what is causing this load problem09:49
bob__when I was using the live CD I found it..But now I cant find it09:49
aftertafmakdaknife: top09:49
aftertafmight be kded being spooky again09:49
intelikeyone half of a percent ?    is there an xserver running ?09:50
makdaknifeaftertaf: ... running top no processes seem to be using the CPU09:50
makdaknifeintelikey: no... I have shutdown x09:50
aftertaf0.5% usage == load problem? sure about that?09:50
makdaknifeintelikey: load at 0.58=58% usage09:50
intelikeyyou do realize that it requires cpu to poll the cpu usage ?09:51
makdaknifeload at 1=100% usage09:51
makdaknifeintelikey: yes09:51
intelikeyoh that wasn't percent.   i see.09:51
intelikeythen yes constant 50 is high09:51
aftertaflol :)09:51
bob__Ok I got..Thanks09:56
cpk1it says my load average is over 1.0...09:58
makdaknifecpk1: your CPU is being used 100% and there are other processes waiting in the run queue09:58
cpk1experiencing no slowdown...09:59
cpk1Cpu(s):  8.6%us,  2.3%sy is what I would imagine to be relevant cpu info09:59
clau30if load 1=100% how can 1.75 be possible? 175%?09:59
cpk1 1 user,  load average: 1.07, 1.08, 1.08 is what I have10:00
cpk1but like I said no slowdown or anything10:00
makdaknifeman uptime:10:02
makdaknife       System load averages is the average number of processes that are either in a runnable or uninterruptable state.  A process in a runnable state is either using the  CPU10:02
makdaknife       or  waiting  to use the CPU. A process in uninterruptable state is waiting for some I/O access, eg waiting for disk.  The averages are taken over the three time inter‐10:02
makdaknife       vals.  Load averages are not normalized for the number of CPUs in a system, so a load average of 1 means a single CPU system is loaded all the time while on  a  4  CPU10:02
makdaknife       system it means it was idle 75% of the time.10:02

ubotumakdaknife: pastebin is a service to post large texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org (be sure to give the URL of your paste - see also the #kubuntu channel topic)10:02
makdaknifeRogueJediX: apologies... but it seems that a large number of users need some educating10:03
cpk1oh, so I guess e2fsck running for the last couple hours would cuase system load to go up10:04
RogueJediXmakdaknife: No prob10:04
makdaknifeinteresting... I have just noticed that only one core of my CPU seems to be represented in htop... yet... cat /proc/cpuinfo shows: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+10:06
makdaknifeany ideas why only one core might not be being used?10:06
clau30makdaknife: thanks for the enlightment ;)10:06
cpk1it could just be htop not reporting correctly right?10:07
makdaknifecpk1: usually when you cat /proc/cpuinfo on a dual core it reports for both cores... but its only reporting for one... so I don't think htop is reporting incorrectly10:08
makdaknifecpk1: it may also explain why the box is behaving as if it is under load the whole time10:09

FritzelI have kopete launch at login, is there anyway to always give kopete access to it? I don't want to have to type in a password at login10:31
Fritzelanyway to give kopete perminant access to wallet I ment10:32
clau30Fritzel: you probably have been asked by kwallet to "allow once" or "allow always"10:36

twagerBurning .mp3 files as audio (wav) in k3b does not give song titles just numbers. Is there a way to make it include titles ?10:39

clau30if you give no password, you won't be asked10:40
Fritzelyes that sounds about right10:40
clau30but then, why use wallet anyway?10:40

twagermakdaknife: Files I have d/loaded as mp3 and need to burn to a cd but with track titles not track numbers.13:19
twagermakdaknife: As .wav cos the cdplayer is very old and will not see mp313:20
makdaknifetwager: in K3B select create an Audio CD, and drag the mp3s into the window... the CD-Text will be generated based on the ID3Tags in the mp3s themselves... very few CD players that I've come across even read the CD-Text13:21
makdaknifetwager: when you create and Audio CD it will convert the mp3s to WAV automatically13:22
twagermakdaknife: That is what I do but whilst it creates .wav files it does not include the title just the numerical order on the disk13:23
makdaknifetwager: if your cd-player is so old... does it matter?13:24
twagermakdaknife: It would be nice to see what was on the cd ..especially if I gave them away13:26

twagerDr_willis: Name tags ?13:33
Dr_willisI got some Dog Tags. :)13:34
makdaknifetwager: I'm not really sure what you're looking for... but K3B will burn CD-Text with Title and Artist info based on what it can extract from the id3 tags... if your mp3s have ID3Tags properly specified, then K3B can burn cd-text13:35
twagermakdaknife: Would files d/loaded with Frostwire have the tags ?13:37
buzwhat could be the reason that windows sees my digicam in UMS mode just fine whereas kubuntu finds a new scsi device but cant mount it?13:44

BluesKajthe default is home/yourusername in the cli , correct ?15:18
* BluesKaj is quite sure it is15:18
sigma_1234ah i see. but can you tell it to save somewhere else?15:18

ubotuPackage webkit does not exist in gutsy15:35

Jucato(actually you can open any webpage from there too)15:41
bibsthai recently dl kde4 in gusty as suggested in kubuntu.org15:41
bibsthaand firefox looks horribly ugly thus giving konqueror a try15:41
bibsthaso far i've been quite happy15:41
bibsthawhich kde will hardy use? 3 or 4?15:42
* ct529 hopes for a cleaned up version of kde415:43
Jucatobibstha: both15:44
bibsthaJucato: umm, the beta version had 315:44
Jucatoas for Firefox looking uggly in KDE 4, there's a gtk-kde4 "plugin" that sort of fixes that15:44
Jucatobibstha: there's also a KDE 4 Remix for Hardy Beta15:44
bibsthai guess kde4's gonna be on the repos15:44
* BluesKaj wishes they would have concentrated their efforts on useablilty rather than the different "look" 15:44
bibsthagtk-kde4? on backports?15:44
bibsthaJucato: aah15:44
bibsthaBluesKaj: i like the looks though really clean15:44
JucatoBluesKaj: you're referring to KDE 4?15:45
BluesKajyeah Jucato15:45
Jucato1. Who says they didn't? 2. Who says they won't? 3. And who will tell them what and what not to work on?15:45
ct529I like kde4 very much, and its usability too15:45
ct529the only reason i have not moved yet is kontact, that still has some minor issues there15:46
BluesKajyeah Jucato , no kidding :)15:46
Jucatounless KDE is run by a company, no one dictates what should be done, what should be focused on, and what should be abandoned15:46
Jucato(same with Kubuntu actually)15:46
bibsthact529: btw konversation hasn't been ported yet either has it?15:46
Jucatobibstha: not yet15:46
vader_Уважаемые, а есть тут кто Русскоговорящий.....? Прошу помощи!15:46
Jucatothey will start porting after they release Konvi 1.115:46
ct529bibstha: no, but old konv works very well there15:47

vader_Thanks a lot!15:47
* BluesKaj understands they are volunteers , hence not to be taken to task about flaws ... I hope my citricism is viewed as constructive :)15:47
ct529the other problem I have is that you cannot select odd or even pages from the kde print manager interface yet15:48
bibsthaBluesKaj: no problem15:48
clau30BluesKaj: that's not constructive criticism ;)15:48
JucatoBluesKaj: more like wishful thinking? hehe :)15:48
* BluesKaj detects heat from flames15:48
clau30BluesKaj: if you want to be helpful you can go to bugs.kde.org and help fix those nasty bugs ;)15:48
JucatoBluesKaj: although sometimes statements like those could sound unfair for those who poured sweat and blood into making KDE 4 usable :)15:49
bibsthaone more thing? ctrl+enter = .com at the end in mozilla, anything similar in konqueror?15:49
Jucatobibstha: not that I know of15:49
BluesKajerr love me love my dog :)15:49
JucatoBluesKaj: and to be fair, only Plasma is the one that needs more work than others :P15:49
BluesKajJucato, agreed15:49
bibsthaJucato: ohh and yes Plasma too15:49
clau30BluesKaj: KDE4 is "under construction" and if you see what the developers say, usability is a big point..15:49
clau30I think KDE4 is a monster yet to awake :)15:50
bibsthaim more impressed with interface :D15:50
ct529I think kde 4 is very usable actually, I like the new kicker a lot, I ma finding it difficult to go back to gnome  or kde 315:51
BluesKajhey , I'm trying kde4.,..it's my opinion so far ...isn't that aceptable ?15:52
Jucatoof course it is :)15:52
clau30BluesKaj: of course it is15:52
clau30but not really true15:52
bibsthawhere is gtk-kde4?15:52
clau30like you said they didn't focus on usability15:52
Jucatoactually, #kubuntu-kde4 should be the place for KDE 4 discussions15:53
Jucato(but I'm not there so...)15:53
clau30actually #kde-cafe :)15:53
* BluesKaj goes for another coffee15:53
Jucatobibstha: ask there, I forgot the name... might be gtk-qt4 actually15:53
Jucatoclau30: nope15:53
clau30BluesKaj: that's not what I ment, lol15:53
clau30Jucato: no?15:53

clau30why not Jucato?15:54

clau30sorry, I was talking about what BluesKaj said :)15:55

dennisterNickPresta: k...do locates regularly...have lots of results...doesn't tell me which directory is the installation directory16:58
jhutchinsDoesn't aptitude has some tool that lists the files belonging to a package and where they're installed?17:00

dennistertrappist: yeah, well, i tried installing into that particular directory u just mentioned, but i'm still not getting the videos17:02

trappistdennister: did you restart firefox?17:02
trappistdennister: also, why didn't you install the ubuntu package?17:02

dennisternow, when I try this adobe version again, (timestamp march 28), the installer will ask me which is the installation directory17:15
dennisterwhich is, I believe, the question I asked when i came into the channel....which is the proper isntallation directory?17:16

dennisterlol...a basic18:37
dennistertrappist: unfortunately, ls-l <directory> gives me the same abbreviated info konqueror does...not the root of the target18:39
trappistdennister: it's the relative path... relative to where you are.  so if it says ../../some/path, you start two directories above where you are18:39

dennistergenii: i'm having a real problem with flash...one in repositories is not installing 'cuz of an md4sum mismatch, and to use adobe's tarball i need to know where the firefox installation directory is...but I simply can't find that18:49
geniidennister: firefox doesnt really install into any one dir. Parts are in /usr/lib/firefox parts in /usr/share/firefox the binary is in /usr/bin and user specific things in ~/.mozilla/firefox18:52
dennisterok then, ty...will try another method18:52
dennisterok, nothing is working here, so if anyone else comes in here complaining about flash...it's adobe's fault, and don't bother with the repository version for now...the repositories need updating with that file18:58
dennisterrepository's version worked fine a few days ago, but not now...I'd be nervous about letting it be updated either19:00

trophyheadhi guys = )   I just came from the computer store & of course the salesmen was trying to sell me the most expensive video card, also told me I was wrong thinking bus speed will effect card performance? so is he fulla **** or whats your opinion?19:40
GS3Userwhich bus?19:42
trophyheadumm not sure the bus speed of a computer, is there different ones?19:43
GS3Usermost things in a computer are buses really... AGP had several, PCI has one, PCIe has one, PCIe(16x) has one, there are memory bus speeds19:44
GS3Userthe list goes on19:44
GS3Usergenerally speaking... faster is better19:44
trophyheadmines an old pentium4 desktop 2ghz, I was reading it from the internal specs menu I guess, its only 133mhz19:46
trophyheadbus is 133 I mean19:47
frank_trophyhead: It's not worth it to put alot of money in old computers like that. Considering what you can get for 400$ new19:48
trophyheadya I guess thx, just can't get rid of this ole clunker & having troulble saving 400, cause added to that is the moniter which is another 200 at least, oh well the cheap fix isn't the best route hehe19:50
frank_trophyhead: well if you want to put a 60$ video card that's fine. but a 150$ one wouldn't make much sense19:51
trophyheadya think ill be better off waiting & saving, thx for the advice = )19:53

geniitrtr: For configuring a printer, usually: System Settings ...Printers ...Add..Printer/Class ... Then from there it's a wizard that runs to guide you in install20:27
trtryeah but it just says nothing detected when i run it20:28
user1genii:  stan_ what should be the mount point?20:29
geniiuser1: use pastebin website to post output of command: sudo fdisk -l                  so we can try to figure out what drive or partition holds your old Windows install20:30

pulaskiHello,  I'm trying to install my canon i550 printer.  I've added it successfully to cups and I've added it using the KDE printer System Setting.  However in order to get it to actuall print I need to grab a couple of libraries.  apt-get can't find the package libtiff3g and apt-get tells me that the libpng2 is not available but referred to by another package that has been obsoleted or is only available from another source.  Can20:31
pulaskianyone here offer a suggestion on either package or any additions to my apt sources file?20:31

pulaskiI've joined this channel a few times before but I'm pretty clueless about some of the finer points of IRC.  Can someone tell me how I can get the user name of the person I'm responding too to precede my respnse and publish my response to this user in red?20:41

SlimeyPetepulaski: the "red" bit is handled automatically by your client and theirs (on my client, my name appears yellow and everyone else is white)20:42
SlimeyPetepulaski: however to address your first point, type the first few letters of their name and press tab20:42
pulaskigood, thanks SlimeyPete.  My client is Konversation.20:44
JoshOvkiSlimeyPete: well i didnt know that20:44
geniiuser1: For now, make some temporary  directory. Like:   sudo mkdir /mnt/tmp                    then mount each possible partition there in turn and see if when you list the contents it fits what would be on old C:\ (or wherever you installed Windows to). So basic process wouold be mount, list, unmount, repeat until you hit the correct listing of files. Then you know which partition is the old Windows install20:44
pulaskiSlimeyPete: THANKS!20:44
geniipulaski: Sorry for inattention, I have become somewhat preoccupied on my current assisting, and also work is requiring me for brief periods20:45
SlimeyPetepulaski: chances are the colouring is set in the preferences menu somewhere (I don't use Konversation myself so I don't know for sure)20:45
user1genii:  ok. let me20:45
pulaskiSlimeyPete: good deal!20:48

akleinhohello, can anyone perhaps help me with a 'symbol lookup error' i'm receiving since installing kde4?23:31
akleinhoa few programs (firefox, audacity for example) state the following error:23:32
akleinho$ firefox23:32
akleinho/usr/lib/firefox-3.0b5/firefox: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: undefined symbol: g_dpgettext23:32
COMANDERi've downloaded pidgin, and how can i install it?23:36
akleinhoisn't sudo apt-get install pidgin possible?23:37
GS3Userdid you get it using the adept manager?23:37
COMANDERwell im new in using linux and i can't understand a thing23:37
akleinhoan easy way is to install it with the following command:23:37
akleinhosudo apt-get install pidgin23:38
GS3Usergui interface for all your install needs23:38
akleinhoof course GS3User's way is even easier23:38
akleinhoNo-one familiar with symbol lookup errors then?23:39
GS3Useri'm fairly certain kopete comes with kubuntu also23:39
GS3Userit's a multi-protocal IM program as well23:39
GS3Usersorry, no23:41
akleinhook, np23:41
akleinhoanother question: I would like to 'downgrade' to kubuntu 7.10 (from 8.04), whithout losing any files form my /home folder (which is placed on a separate partition)23:43
akleinhois there an easy way?23:43
GS3Usersorry, i'm fairly new to linux myself... i can help with some of the issues i've dealt with, but that wouldn't be one of them23:44
akleinho:) again no problem. Is this usually a good irc for these kind of questions?23:44
ScorpKingakleinho: i think reinstall will be the easiest. just make sure you don't format the /home partition23:44
akleinhoah ok, thanks23:44
GS3Userif someone is around, live help is generally preferable i've found23:44
GS3Userbut the forums are really awesome as well23:44
* ScorpKing prefers using irc..23:45
akleinhoScorpKing, do you mean reinstalling from a Kubuntu cd?23:45
ScorpKingakleinho: yes23:45
ScorpKingakleinho: i also recommend to always keep /home on a seperate partition so reinstalling is easy ;)23:46
akleinho:) thanks, luckily I've (for the first time) just done that23:46
ScorpKinggood choice :)23:47
akleinhoalright, i'm going to do that, thanks, it feels more safe to have checked beforehand :)23:47
akleinhoand I'm getting the feeling i'm going to use irc more to get answers to questions :)23:48
akleinhothanks again, see you later23:48

lufthanza_GS3User: actually, looking at the fstab file gives me the answer to question 2, so I just need to know how to find out the uuid of a partition.23:53
